    Mick Jagger will close out this season of NBC's "Saturday Night Live" as both host and, along with Foo Fighters and Arcade Fire, musical guest. He does so at a moment when his professional reputation is not exactly at its high water mark.[snip] I will take the admixture of flops and gems that Late Jagger yields over what I'm getting from Late Richards — which is not much of anything.

It was the high-pitched rough-edged wail of Led Zeppelin front man Robert Plant that won the title after he came first in a vote organised by digital radio station Planet Rock.

Five years on, the legacy of the Iraq war is now clear. Let us look at the balance sheet. Based on an extrapolation from the figures of the Lancet study, more than 1 million Iraqi civilians have died - a figure that might even eclipse the genocide in Rwanda.

    Shanghai -- When the Rolling Stones take to their first mainland China stage Saturday, their audience isn't likely to look much different than one in San Francisco. Rather than to a sea of Chinese faces, the band will play to an international crowd. A unique mix of censorship, daunting bureaucracy and an immature commercial market make China -- a potentially lucrative place to tap a new, hip audience -- into something of a wasteland when it comes to the type of big concerts that generate viewers on pay-per-view in the United States. The Western rock and pop acts popular among...

Rights campaigner Jagger, the Council of Europe's goodwill ambassador, has travelled to Iran with a group called "U.S. Academics for Peace", seeking to ensure the Islamic Republic does not become the next Iraq.

The "fit me up" claim is contained in documents just released at The National Archives. Mick got nicked - and no satisfaction with his claim. Scotland Yard dismissed it. The Yard said that the Rolling Stones singer was associated with "the world of users of dangerous drugs". Which proves that you really can't always get what you want.

    ...Richard Nixon, amid a similar low ebb of popularity with Vietnam, gave a famous speech in 1969. This was the year after the Tet offensive, which caused Walter Cronkite's famous Hagel-like throwing in of the towel. In that speech Nixon described a "great silent majority" in America. The idea, of course, was that the daily media attention commanded by the antiwar movement was missing a class of Americans who sat home seething at the behavior of the protesters.

The Brit rockers' new CD, ``A Bigger Bang,'' comes out Sept. 6, but Matt Drudge and other right-wing media types are already foaming at the mouth after discovering the lyrics to one of its songs, ``Sweet Neo Con,'' a scarcely disguised savaging of the commander in chief.

Hugo Chavez, the neo-Marxist military leader, was "democratically elected," Mr. Dodd notes; he urges the White House "to reconsider its failed approach to Venezuela." In just the same way, Dodd would welcome back Jean-Bertrand Aristide, his best friend in Haiti. Dodd is known in Washington as "the senator from accounting," a richly earned sobriquet for the legislation he initiated that would have protected the Arthur Andersen firm for its role in the Enron...
